dave ross on deck. show it off. >> it is my old marine corps days. i can't get out of that habit. it is so easy. >> no playoff beard so i went with the shortcut. trying to do something for the caps. what an incredible series this has been. bradden holtby has been absolutely unbelievable so far in this playoff series. he can't play any better. let's hope he can. if he can, the caps might move ahead. this is nicky backstrom. he has only played six games
5:53 am
since suffering a concussion back on january 3rd but back now and boy, do they need him. and boom, there is the game winner past timmy thomas. now, when you get nicky backstrom back, alexander semin plays well and alexander ovechkin, if holtby can hang in there, we might just get an upset. don't believe me. list tonight guys. >> both teams battling. that is just playoffs. that is the way it should be. every team, you got to perform and play hard out there. both team are blocking shots, you know, and being tough in front of the net. you describe it as great for the fans. >> everyone here has been in good spirits. i think that was a huge win for our confidence. everyone is a little bit

serves you no good with the next umpire if you say this guy has blown every call that is out there. you have to bite your tongue. >> they are doing so well. >> yeah, 7-3. >> sort of like don't rock the boat too much. >> you just normally don't see those three in succession that happened within two minutes that cost you four runs in the first inning. so it was just like what's going on here. what do i have to do to get an out. very excite for the caps tonight. this is a big pivotal game. if you win this one, you have stolen home ice advantage. home ice resides with washington. >> fox 5 doing a lot on this too. >> correct. >> and the bruins are favored. >> they are the defending stanley cup champs for a rope. they are very good but lets asee if we can get them in game three tonight. >> thank you. more of us are brown bagging it at work and it is not just to save money. that is ahead at 6:00 in our
